God damn she's 48? Thought she was like early 30s at the most. Well done.

She was a touring keyboardist with The Rentals (a band formed by Weezer's ex-bassist) in the mid-90s:

Maya Rudolph must have one of the best agents in the entertainment bizness. I mean, she's really good and talented and I dig her too, but it just amazes me how much work she gets. Kinda like Amanda Seyfried (or whatever her name is). For a while there it seemed like she was starring in every other film that came out. Then again, all perceptions have been distorted in the last year of this seemingly interminable lockdown.

And you can tell that the people she works with genuinely love her.  Seeing the way she interacts with Seth Meyers and Fred Armisen is just a delight.

I can only guess that's because Ms. Rudolph genuinely loves what she does, as well. You would have to enjoy your work to keep a schedule as busy as hers. I like my job OK but there's no way I could ever put in the kinda hours that she seems to do on a regular basis.

Not only is she amazing, she's half of the greatest celebrity marriage in the history of celebrity marriage:

She's hollywood royalty, she's been hooked in since she was a baby: Her mom a star singer, her dad a high powered entertainment lawyer.  She's been pals with like 50 hollywood stars and deal makers since they were all kids at each others' mansions.  Same shiat in every industry man, moneyed folk are all about hanging out with each other, and not with y'all.

I confess to being extremely curious what that marriage is like.  Not two people you would think to put together.  PTA is fairly down-to-earth in his interviews, but he also strikes me as a person of unforgiving exactitude.

She's awesome on so many levels. Cool she got to bring all her kids to the show. Did not know her mom sang that song, but I am old enough to remember hearing it on the radio. I'm sure many here remember when Ellen Griswald hit those same high notes.

Also, definitely recommend the movie Mr. Pig with her and Danny Glover.

I did not know this. Saw them open for Blur, at the Roseland in NYC.

Fun fact: They have dance/tap shoes from famous dancers. Gregory Hines feet were ginormous!

Not if they are hard to work with, are mean or have an attitude.

The old saying of know your lines, show up
On time and hit your marks is not a joke.

Truth in advertising. Mrs. Chakan (who is AA) looks a decade younger than she is. My pasty butt is aging like milk sitting on an Arizona rooftop.
